PlayStation 3: Tower of power
  • High-definition capabilities: Enjoy high-definition entertainment, HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) means you can use your PlayStation 3 with high-definition televisions as well as conventional TVs.
  • Hard Disk Drive (HDD): The PlayStation 3 comes with a 60GB removable hard disk drive (HDD) allowing you to store your music, images and video files as well as content downloaded from Sony’s online service.
  • System interoperability: The PlayStation 3 and PSP are designed to work together so you can easily exchange media like photos, videos and music from your PlayStation 3 system to your PSP. Game developers are also working on innovative and exciting ways of integrating the PSP system into PlayStation 3 games.
  • Backwards compatibility: The PlayStation 3 is compatible with over 1000, but not all, PSone and PlayStation 2 games as well as audio CDs and DVDs.
  • Always on: PlayStation 3 delivers an "always-on" online experience; offering a world of online possibilities including multiplayer gaming, text and video messaging, voice chatting, downloading content and browsing the internet.
  • Blu-Ray: The built-in Blu-ray disc player means you can enjoy next-generation high-definition entertainment, including games and movies.

Under the hood:
The PlayStation 3 is powered by the Cell Broadband Engine, a revolutionary microprocessor that leapfrogs the performance of existing processors, giving the PlayStation 3 system supercomputer-like power and performance that until now, game developers have only dreamt about. For example, the Cell Broadband Engine is 40 times faster than the chip that is found inside the PlayStation 2 console.

The PlayStation 3 system’s Cell Broadband Engine is the very thing that game developers have always dreamt about. Its unique multi-processing unit design represents a tour de force in parallel processing. The ability to do more of everything at the same time means more enemies, more AI, more explosions, and more realistic gameplay. Amazing gameplay elements such as ragdoll physics and keyframe animation, enemy AI behaving unpredictably, glass cracking based on the size of the object that impacted it, and individual flecks of dust in a beam of sunlight are all possible with the PlayStation 3. The Cell Broadband Engine has the muscle and horsepower to move beyond artificial intelligence.

Blu-ray:
The built-in Blu-ray disc player means you can enjoy next-generation high-definition entertainment, including games and movies. Just as the DVD offered a technological leap from CDs, Blu-ray is the next leap forward in the advancement of data storage technology and digital entertainment. With Blu-ray, the PlayStation 3 offers game developers unprecedented power to express their creativity and a larger canvas to produce a level of interaction, sophistication and reality that has never existed in gaming. More than an evolution, Blu-ray is a revolution that frees developers from the constraints of storage space and allows them to dream in Blu-ray.

  • High-definition: Blu-ray’s vast storage capacity (50 GB BD vs. 5 GB DVD) supports the large data requirements of high-definition games and movies.
  • Pristine picture quality: Blu-Ray delivers pristine picture quality at 1080p - the highest-definition resolution available today.
  • Theatre-quality audio: The PlayStation 3 has audio that redefines "life-like" with its 7.1 channel surround sound and true lossless audio. This theatre-quality "uncompressed" audio supports 8 channels of Liner PCM and up to 32 audio streams.
  • Quality movies in high-definition: Seven of the eight major movie studios have already announced titles for Blu-ray, including Warner, Paramount, Fox, Disney, Sony, MGM and Lionsgate.
  • Recordable media: Blu-ray offers a recordable format with unsurpassed storage capacity to store your digital world: photographs, home videos, music libraries and data, as well as games and movies.
  • Maximum bit rate: With the overwhelming computational power of its Cell Broadband Engine processor, the PlayStation 3 is capable of playing back content from Blu-Ray at a bit rate of multiplex 48Mbps, the maximum bit rate defined in Blu-Ray standards.
  • Industry support: Blu-Ray has the broadest industry support for any disc format ever launched and is supported by more than 170 of the world’s leading consumer electronics, personal computer and media manufacturers including Apple, Dell, Hitachi, Hewlett-Packard, JVC, LG, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, TDK and Thomson.

SIXAXIS wireless controller:
Utilising sensors designed to read when a player angles, tilts, thrusts, or pulls, the SIXAXIS controller was designed to become a natural extension of the player’s body. And with the heritage of the PlayStation system’s basic controller design still intact, gamers are now able to harness the intuitive movements of a multi-axis controller in a design that they are familiar and comfortable with.

  • Motion sensing system: Thanks to breakthrough technology and a highly sensitive motion sensing system, the controller is a natural extension of the user’s body.
  • Bluetooth: The PlayStation 3 can support up to seven wireless controllers using Bluetooth technology.
  • Wireless or wired: The SIXAXIS controller can be easily switched from wireless to wired.
  • Analogue joysticks: The tilting angle of the analogue joysticks has been slightly broadened to enable more delicate and dynamic manipulation.
  • L2/R2 buttons: The shape of the L2/R2 buttons has been altered, enabling increased travel and precision for more subtle control in games.
  • USB charging: Plug into a USB cable and automatically charge the controller through the system at any time.

Multimedia support:
The PlayStation 3 provides an endless array of multimedia activities, all without even inserting a game. It gives you unprecedented control, access and enjoyment of a full range of digital media including music, photos, video and internet content.

  • Music and audio
    • Play music CDs
    • Connect to the internet to obtain detailed album information including album title, artist, length of album

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Original System 26 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This was Sony's first SKU that launched in the U.K nearly 2 years ago and in my mind is their greatest system. It has everything. Backwards compatibility, memory card slots, 4 USB ports and SACD playback.

It's such a shame that Sony had to discontinue this SKU but if you can pick it up from anyone who dosn't want the 60Gb model I would suggest you take it, as it's well worth every penny you spend.

5.0 out of 5 stars pricey but worth it. 17 Oct. 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
first off, i dont own a 360 but some of my friends do.

any way.

its a beautiful design, bigger than any other console yes, but looks amazing under your big tv. the card inputs are handy for mobile phone memory, digital cameras etc. the four usb ports get used by me regulary. i hook up my sony HD walkman and hey presto i can play it through my tv/hifi set up with nice visuals and complete control. i can also plug in a mouse/keyboard and surf the web with ease (can use pad if you want)
the XMB sytem looks ace, and the background display changes with the time of day, you can add your own background if you want.
the system is quiet in running., more so than my old "big" ps2 and xbox 360.
come with HDMI output and digital optical as well as the Playstation AV standard hook up for older tv's.
wirelss works well, no problems for me, i would say the internet browser is a tad slow.

games wise its not the best at the moment. people moan, but there is plenty of choice just not compared to the 360 (has had a 2 year headstart) playing online is ace and i'd reccomend warhawk to anyone.
programmers say its hard to program for, thats laziness, they said exactly the same thing about the ps2 in its early days, developing for that console soon became industry standard.

comparing it to the xbox elite you get in my opinion a better deal.
£300 for the elite with 1 game. or £350 for the ps3 with 2 controllers, 2 games and a blu ray film (not amazon i add)
ok so you dont get the 120gb hard drive of the elite (you get 60gb) but you do get a far more reliable machine (xbox has a 30-40% failuire rate, my mate andi has had 3!)

plus you get a blu ray player (the ps3 has one of the best blu ray players - fact) blue ray is currently the winning format due to sony owning columbia pictures etc. true xbox plays HD dvd but you need an add on drive (£100) a la sega mega-cd. no thanks.

tidy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Console and Media Center 19 Dec. 2008
Having had the first generation PS1, then the PS2, Gamecube and Xbox in the second generation; we now come to the "next" gen. The Playstation 3.

If you ignore all the hype and the recent crying and moaning between the so called "fanboys" about exclusives and what not. You will be able to see what this console actually offers.

Firstly, there is the price. If you live in the UK is quite expensive I will be the first to admit but also remember that the PS2 was not exactly cheap at launch. What you are paying for is very advanced "CELL" technology as well as a good future investment in the form a blue-ray DVD player.

The PS3 offers you the ability to access the PSN or Playstation Network. Which is totally free, you are able to download movie trailers, game videos/trailers, demos and game addons. Unlike microsoft's XBL service you are not constantly charged a monthly fee. Download speed's are fast and you are able to make accounts for different regions which means you can access EU, US and Asian PSN items. PSN allows you to create a friends list, send messages. The PSN along with Sony's coming "HOME" will allow seamless integration of the PSN, Games and video/music on the PS3.

Graphically the Playstation 3 so far has matches the Xbox 360 if not surpasses this on some games. Where the PS3 excels is its CPU it can handle far more complex physics and numbers of AI and even more advanced AI if the Cell processor is used correctly than the Xbox 360. It also functions as a computer. You can watch movies, slideshow photos and browse the internet.

The PS3's controller is similar to the fan favourite Dual shock 2. However, it now is wireless (charged via USB occasionally) and is lighter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consider what you're getting for the price... 15 Sept. 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had a few console in my time, not all of them admittedly, but each time a new generation comes out we hear people who have concerns with the price - not just of the hardware, but of the games themselves. I got myself a Nintendo Wii some time before the PS3 and I love the Wii - it brings a whole new level of immersion and fun to multi-player gaming. Yet, I still ended up with a PS3 as well. This is surely the height of technology - it's like a Formula 1 racing car. However, I'm not going to try and review the games, or the Wii - I'm going to concentrate on the PS3 itself and the potential it offers.

The price might put some people off, but (certainly if you take advantage of one of Amazon's deals) you are getting an awful lot for that initial outlay. The PS3 is a marvel and exceptionally well put together. It is reassuringly heavy when it comes out of the box - you know there's a lot inside. The appearance is not exactly to my liking, but I can't say it isn't stylish and it takes pride of place on any deserving equipment rack.

The connectivity and equipment of the PS3 is something to be in awe of - USB ports, HDMI, Sony proprietary connections, card readers, 60GB drive, Bluetooth, wired and wireless Ethernet, optical audio - it beggard belief really. Yet, what's inside is the most amazing - remember that this beast contains the unbridled power of the IBM, Sony and Toshiba Cell chip - bringing a whole new dimension to computing power. For today's games, when the developers are still getting their heads around how to program for this chip - which is different from previous chips by a long way - we will see pretty standard ports I guess...
